Foxcatcher

It’s far too early to throw around phrases like “best of the year.” But it’s not too early for the phrase “best of Cannes,” and superlative reviews for Foxcatcher suggest that the Bennett Miller drama has already earned that label.

Steve Carell reportedly puts in a career-changing performance as eccentric millionaire John du Pont, who becomes the benefactor to two American wrestlers — brothers Dave (Mark Ruffalo) and Mark Schulz (Channing Tatum). The real-life tragedy that took place between them makes for a sensational story, but Foxcatcher, by all accounts, is more of a slow burn, and all the better for it.

Hit the jump to get the Foxcatcher early buzz, plus a new teaser.

But last night in Burbank, a group of people got to sample a whole lot more. Warner Bros. had a test screening for a rough cut of the film, and the first reactions from the showing have started to come in.
